                          About AFA Foods

King of Prussia, Pennsylvania-based AFA Foods Inc. was one of the
largest processors of ground beef products in the United States.
AFA had seven facilities capable of producing 800 million pound of
ground beef annually.  Revenue in 2011 was $958 million.

Yucaipa Cos. acquired the business in 2008 and currently owns 92%
of the common stock and all of the preferred stock.

AFA Foods, AFA Investment Inc. and other affiliates filed for
Chapter 11 protection (Bankr. D. Del. Lead Case No. 12-11127) on
April 2, 2012, after recent changes in the market for its ground
beef products and the impact of negative media coverage related to
boneless lean beef trimmings (BLBT) affected sales.

Judge Mary Walrath presides over the case.  Laura Davis Jones,
Esq., Timothy P. Cairns, Esq., and Peter J. Keane, Esq., at
Pachulski Stang Ziehl & Jones LLP, in Wilmington, Delaware; Tobias
S. Keller, Esq., at Jones Day, in San Francisco; and Jeffrey B.
Ellman, Esq., and Brett J. Berlin, Esq., at Jones Day, in Atlanta,
Georgia, represent the Debtors.  FTI Consulting Inc. serves as the
Debtors' financial advisors and Imperial Capital LLC serves as
marketing consultants.  Kurtzman Carson Consultants LLC serves as
noticing and claims agent.

As of Feb. 29, 2012, the Debtors' books and records on a
consolidated basis, reflected approximately $219 million in assets
and $197 million in liabilities.  AFA Foods, Inc., disclosed
$615,859,574 in assets and $544,499,689 in liabilities as of the
Petition Date.

Roberta A. DeAngelis, U.S. Trustee for Region 3, appointed seven
members to the official committee of unsecured creditors in the
Debtors' cases.  The Committee has obtained approval to hire
McDonald Hopkins LLC as lead counsel and Potter Anderson & Corroon
LLP serves as co-counsel.  The Committee also obtained approval to
retain J.H. Cohn LLP as its financial advisor.

AFA, in its Chapter 11 case, sold plants and paid off the first-
lien lenders and the loan financing the Chapter 11 effort.
Remaining assets are $14 million cash and the right to file
lawsuits.

General Electric Capital Corp. and Bank of America Corp. provided
about $60 million in DIP financing.  The loan was paid off in
July 2012.

In October 2012, the Bankruptcy Court denied a settlement that
would have released Yucaipa Cos., the owner and junior lender to
AFA Foods, from claims and lawsuits the creditors might otherwise
bring, in exchange for cash to pay unsecured creditors' claims
under a liquidating Chapter 11 plan.  Under the deal, Yucaipa
would receive $11.2 million from the $14 million, with the
remainder earmarked for unsecured creditors.  Asset recoveries
above $14 million would be split with Yucaipa receiving 90% and
creditors 10%.  Proceeds from lawsuits would be divided roughly
50-50.

                        About Allied Systems

BDCM Opportunity Fund II, LP, Spectrum Investment Partners LP, and
Black Diamond CLO 2005-1 Adviser L.L.C., filed involuntary
petitions for Allied Systems Holdings Inc. and Allied Systems Ltd.
(Bankr. D. Del. Case Nos. 12-11564 and 12-11565) on May 17, 2012.
The signatories of the involuntary petitions assert claims of at
least $52.8 million for loan defaults by the two companies.

Allied Systems, through its subsidiaries, provides logistics,
distribution, and transportation services for the automotive
industry in North America.

Allied Holdings Inc. first filed for chapter 11 protection (Bankr.
N.D. Ga. Case Nos. 05-12515 through 05-12537) on July 31, 2005.
Jeffrey W. Kelley, Esq., at Troutman Sanders, LLP, represented the
Debtors in the 2005 case.  Allied won confirmation of a
reorganization plan and emerged from bankruptcy in May 2007
with $265 million in first-lien debt and $50 million in second-
lien debt.

The petitioning creditors said Allied defaulted on payments of
$57.4 million on the first lien debt and $9.6 million on the
second.  They hold $47.9 million, or about 20% of the first-lien
debt, and about $5 million, or 17%, of the second-lien obligation.
They are represented by Adam G. Landis, Esq., and Kerri K.
Mumford, Esq., at Landis Rath & Cobb LLP; and Adam C. Harris,
Esq., and Robert J. Ward, Esq., at Schulte Roth & Zabel LLP.

subsidiaries into bankruptcy reorganization June 10, 2012,
following the filing of the involuntary Chapter 11 petition.

The Company is being advised by the law firms of Troutman Sanders,
Gowling Lafleur Henderson, and Richards Layton & Finger.

The bankruptcy court process does not include captive insurance
company Haul Insurance Limited or any of the Company's Mexican or
Bermudan subsidiaries.  The Company also announced that it intends
to seek foreign recognition of its Chapter 11 cases in Canada.

the case.  The Committee consists of Pension Benefit Guaranty
Corporation, Central States Pension Fund, Teamsters National
Automobile Transporters Industry Negotiating Committee, and
General Motors LLC.  The Committee is represented by Sidley Austin
LLP.

Yucaipa Cos. has 55 percent of the senior debt and took the
position it had the right to control actions the indenture trustee
would take on behalf of debt holders.  The state court ruled in
March 2013 that the loan documents didn't allow Yucaipa to vote.

In March 2013, the bankruptcy court also gave the official
creditors' committee authority to sue Yucaipa.  The suit includes
claims that the debt held by Yucaipa should be treated as equity
or subordinated so everyone else is paid before the Los Angeles-
based owner. The judge allowed Black Diamond to participate in the
lawsuit against Yucaipa and Allied directors.

                        About Betsey Johnson

New York-based women's fashion retailer Betsey Johnson LLC filed a
Chapter 11 bankruptcy petition (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Case No. 12-11732)
on April 26, 2012, to effectuate a sale of its assets.

Formed as B.J. Vines by its namesake, iconic fashion designer
Betsey Johnson in 1978, the Debtor sells clothing, footwear,
handbags and a signature fragrance through 63 Betsey Johnson
retail stores and outlets in the U.S.  The Company, which has 400
employees, also sells its products in department and specialty
stores worldwide, including Macy's and Lord & Taylor, and online
at http://www.betseyjohnson.com/ Non-debtor subsidiaries operate
five stores in Canada and one store in England.

In 2010, Steven Madden Ltd. a footwear designer and marketer,
swapped US$27.4 million of secured debt for ownership of Betsey
Johnson's trademarks and intellectual property.  The deal
satisfied all outstanding debt under a US$50 million term loan
used to finance the business' acquisition by Castanea Partners.
At the same time, Castanea, the company's majority owner, made a
new capital investment of US$3 million as part of the deal with
Madden.

Betsey Johnson estimated assets and debts of US$10 million to
US$50 million as of the Chapter 11 filing.

firm of Goulston & Storrs, as counsel; Togut, Segal & Segal, LLP,

agent.  The petition was signed by Jonathan Friedman, chief

liquidation after the Debtor failed to attract going concern
bidders.  Liquidators Gordon Brothers Group Inc. and Hilco
Merchant Resources LLC offered the top bid for the right to run
the chain's going-out-of-business sales.  The bid will bring the
Debtor about $5.2 million immediately, and more money could
trickle in to pay off its debts if the liquidation effort brings
in more money than expected.

LLP (US).  Counsel for Steven Madden, Ltd., is Neil Herman, Esq.,

KidsPeace operates a 96-bed pediatric psychiatric hospital in

                            *********

Monday's edition of the TCR delivers a list of indicative prices
for bond issues that reportedly trade well below par.  Prices are
obtained by TCR editors from a variety of outside sources during
the prior week we think are reliable.  Those sources may not,
however, be complete or accurate.  The Monday Bond Pricing table
is compiled on the Friday prior to publication.  Prices reported
are not intended to reflect actual trades.  Prices for actual
trades are probably different.  Our objective is to share
information, not make markets in publicly traded securities.
Nothing in the TCR constitutes an offer or solicitation to buy or
sell any security of any kind.  It is likely that some entity
affiliated with a TCR editor holds some position in the issuers"
public debt and equity securities about which we report.

Each Tuesday edition of the TCR contains a list of companies with
insolvent balance sheets whose shares trade higher than $3 per
share in public markets.  At first glance, this list may look like
the definitive compilation of stocks that are ideal to sell short.
Don't be fooled.  Assets, for example, reported at historical cost
net of depreciation may understate the true value of a firm's
assets.  A company may establish reserves on its balance sheet for
liabilities that may never materialize.  The prices at which
equity securities trade in public market are determined by more
than a balance sheet solvency test.

A list of Meetings, Conferences and Seminars appears in each
Wednesday's edition of the TCR.  Submissions about insolvency-
related conferences are encouraged.  Send announcements to
conferences@bankrupt.com/

On Thursdays, the TCR delivers a list of recently filed
Chapter 11 cases involving less than $1,000,000 in assets and
liabilities delivered to nation's bankruptcy courts.  The list
includes links to freely downloadable images of these small-dollar
petitions in Acrobat PDF format.

Each Friday's edition of the TCR includes a review about a book of
interest to troubled company professionals.  All titles are
available at your local bookstore or through Amazon.com.  Go to
http://www.bankrupt.com/books/to order any title today.

Monthly Operating Reports are summarized in every Saturday edition
of the TCR.

The Sunday TCR delivers securitization rating news from the week
then-ending.
